The Grant Park Skate Plaza and Performance Space Gets Mayoral Support

The Skate Plaza and Performance Space has Mayor Emanuel’s support with a pledge of 1.5 million dollars for the project that will transform 3-acres of fallow land into an exciting new feature for South Grant Park. The Grant Park Conservancy has been lobbying for a skate park for the last 8 years and organized an email campaign where over a hundred skateboarders, rollerbladers and BMXers voiced their support in a final push. There are remaining hurdles but the Skate Plaza and Performance Space is coming very close to being realized.
